Moms and girls waiting as they learn to make Liquid soap at the Workshop
As we come to the mid of the year JUNE 2013, we are focusing on supporting our Moms and children in the slums with sustainability skills!
Our former student Harriet Kabenge brought four friends with her to Mama Africa this week, her third visit, to run our very first Soap making Workshop in Slum community of kosovo.
Harriet, Our student who has become a specialist in breaking the cycle of poverty amongst women here in the Center in Kosovo, gave the first ever in 2013 workshop on fighting poverty to more than 80 Mothers and children at Mama Africa in Kosovo Uganda. The community was really interested and the talk was given in Luganda and lusoga to ensure everyone understood the information that was being provided. The workshop covered the importance of sustainability, women Empowerment and how to reduce the number of violated women due to financial constraints’ and included the opportunity for a Liquid soap Market check from one of the team.
We also launched the Skills empowerment short courses this week with the same team, distributing books, pens for their notes. The plan is specifically aimed at children of Mama Africa, women from the community and the entire community to eradicate, break the cycle of poverty locally and improve their Income in their families and all the days of life, the time deemed most important for a economic development.
We are part of GlobalGiving’s campaign that says, "The world is full of problems, GlobalGiving is full of solutions.” You can do this through a gift. If you would like to support Mom's and girls in Uganda at Mama Africa, whilst gifting your Mom a handmade scarf and set of worry dolls then please take a look at our website: www.mamaafricaorganization.org.
Show them some love this School holy Day!
It’s already May 20 13 and the kids at the MAU) Mama Africa Uganda orphanage have had a great start and end of the 1st term this year. They all did great in their recent progress exams and they’re planning field trips for the next term.
Their success and bright outlook for the future is all down to your generosity. Without you, they would be spending their days worrying about where their next meal would be coming from instead of playing with their gifts or presents! That you send them monthly.
This 2nd term, we hope you’ll keep the kids in mind by making a donation in honor of your Birthday. When you make a donation, your birthday will be given, recognized will receive a beautiful card which makes a lovely, meaningful Birth Day gift.

Kwera children’s Voice choir at Mama Africa l!
With your support, the kids at the orphanage are learning fast. They love school, and the older kids delight in helping the little ones learn their letters and numbers. They have finally recorded their song about Love and their video is out as well
But it’s not just about schoolwork at the orphanage. Uganda recently celebrated its major yearly festival were cadre’s graduated with their security course and Kwera was invited to bless the guests. The staff marked the event with a party – and the kids all dressed in costume! They had an absolutely brilliant time.
Without you, the children and staff at the orphanage would spend their days worrying about where their next meal was coming from instead of deciding on the best costume for this choir. Your generosity makes all the difference.
GlobalGiving will be matching all donations by 30%. That means that tomorrow, if you give just $25 you could feed all 63 children in the orphanage's care for a whole day.
We hope you’ll help provide a secure future for the kids at the orphanage by making a donation tomorrow. If you can’t give, we hope you’ll share https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/support-talent-education-skills-for-50-ugandan-orphans/ with friends and family and let them know how easy it is to change lives in Uganda East Africa
Thanks so much for your support, and we wish you all the very best!
